Thousand Lakes Mountain Lakes Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A surveyor in the early 1900s made the mistake of switching the name of this range with the one south of here. So relatively dry Thousand Lakes Mountain got the name meant for much wetter Boulder Mountain. Fishing is only popular at a few lakes here. Key Species: Rainbow trout, brook trout, cutthroat trout, and tiger trout.
Fishing Index: Like other mountain lakes stocked with trout, lures and flies are the best bets, but bait fishing has it's moments. Maisie and Jake’s spoons are good choices. Fishing with leech patterns in dark colors is also effective. Float tubers tend to have better success than shore anglers. Ants are always a good choice in the late summer and into fall. Salmon eggs, Power Bait, and night crawlers fished near the bottom are traditional ways to catch trout while bait fishing from shore. The DWR stocks most of the lakes with rainbows, but there are healthy populations of brook trout. Some lakes have tiger trout and cutthroat. Expect company, especially on the weekends."
